Need a Cadbury Chocolate Bar Now

Time for more Friday Fun

1. If you could have been (could be) any profession you wanted (brains and $$$ no problem) what would it be? I always wanted to be a home decorator, but now after watching the food network, all I want to do is cook, cook, cook. 

2. How often do you clean out your car? According to my cleaning schedule once a month, but that doesn’t always happen, just ask my annoyed hubby.

3. Do you wish there was such a thing as fashion police or are you deeply relieved? fashion police? I can’t stand the fashion police. I believe in dressing how you want and what makes you comfortable. During the winter hubby would playfully tease me about my ankle cowboy boots with calf-length corduroy skirt, but I loved how I looked.

4. What’s your go to food/drink/activity when stressed?  CADBURY CHOCOLATE BARS, sure they make me sick, but sometimes you just need that guilty pleasure. Then there is always a great jack and coke to help with stress.

5. If you had twins, what would you name them? (for girls) Angelina Sophia for my grandma and Isabella Rose reminds me of Isabella Rossellini, (for boys) Anthony Joseph and Vincent Michael, (for a boy and girl) Angelina Sophia and Anthony Joseph


 Sorry in advance for the melancholy letters.

Dear School Systems, It is very disheartening to not be called in for an interview. Am I over-qualified? I am willing to take a paycut, but you wouldn’t know that because I have not been called for any interviews. From a qualified and experience teacher who needs to work

Dear President Obama, I am a good person, I follow the rules. I don’t take advantage of others or steal. Yes, I may not be perfect, but I work hard and want to earn a living. Why can’t I find a job? I can’t get a teaching job. No one will hire me out of education. What am I supposed to do?. From one of the many unemployed people in the United States.

Dear hubby, In a few weeks my BOCES money will run out and my unemployment checks will either go towards the rent or half the rent and bills. You are going to have to start giving me money each week for groceries and gas. You will have to decide to pay the bills or kick in half the money for rent. You will probably want to blame me for all of this, but know this is hard on me too. Please be kind to me when I ask for money or you have to pay a bill you don’t understand. Life Bank is important for our son if he gets sick. I can’t give that up. I have gone without so much already, so please be understanding and
kind to me.

  1. Karen, I’m so sorry that you are going through this rough time. My husband was laid off (literally while I was pushing out my son) and it was one of the scariest summers of my life, not knowing what was going to happen next. Keep the faith, it will all work out. Have you checked out They have a lot of local and online teaching job listings. I’m a teacher too and I have seen tons of lay offs and how hard it is to get into the schools right now, but I read somewhere that we are on the cusp of a whole generation of retirees and we’ll need tons of new teachers soon. Good luck! You are in my prayers.

    • I think I remember you saying that, which is horrific and heartless. We have OLAS in our area which lists all the teaching jobs, but without knowing someone it’s hard to get in now. I will check out, thanks. A teacher from our reading department retired, but the big wigs at BOCES decided to cut our department in half to save money. We all did a tremendous amount of work to change the way the reading department was viewed; by cutting our dept claiming we could only work with related service, destroyed all the hard work we did. But they have all their jobs. I will get out of this funk soon.

  2. I love and eat Cadbury chocolate all the time!

    And I’m sorry things are so hard for you right now. Keeping all my digits crossed that you get something soon. Hang on in there.

    • thanks babe, aren’t they the best chocolate. We went to Hershey, PA last summer, and I just couldn’t enjoy the chocolate, it’s not as good.

  3. Both those jobs would be super fun! Too bad I’m not always the best at decorating or cooking.. haha!
    Those are super pretty names that you have come up with.
    Good luck with the job searching.. It is tough to get a job right now! I definitely don’t have the qualifications you have but I can’t get a job anywhere either. Ugh.
    Stopping by from 5-Question-Friday ♥

    • I’m sorry babe, hubby told me that five thousand teachers applied for one position in his school, that’s how crazy it is now. My mother used to tease me that the girl name sounded like a pasta sauce. LOL

  4. Hi, stopping by from My Little Life-5QF! I love to cook too, just can’t picture myself doing it professionally. I’m going through a hard time finding work too….it seems that nobody calls! I’m even considering a career change-maybe something new will open up some doors for me! Lots of luck with your search.

    • Good luck to you babe, I know it’s hard out there. I tried to get a job in another field, but you have to fight with all their competition too. Hoping all this is for a reason.
